I'm driving from New York to Los Angeles with 5 friends (all 23) in August. We only have 2 weeks to do this leg of the trip unfortunately but we're taking the Southern route. We definitly want to stop off in Washington D.C., Graceland, Alabama and the Grand Canyon. Any suggestions of places we shouldn't miss along the way? We want culture, nice scenery, good food and of course great nightlife!
Also I'm interested in hearing from people who have been to the Burning Man Festival. We're planning on going and want to know how long the drive takes from San Francisco? Also any things that we should definitly not forget. I know you can't buy anything once you're in.
I'd appreciate any help whatsover.
